Parts for CMC Jack Plates and Tilt Trim Units

Several instances you probably encounter that your tilt and trim unit is not working properly. The tilt and trim system is an electro-hydraulic system. There are two different sub-systems: the electrical and the hydraulic. Diagnosis of problems in the electrical system is fairly straightforward. There is a source of power (the battery), controls (the trim switches and the relays they operate), and the actuator (the electric motor). With a basic knowledge of electricity you can easily investigate and repair problems in this electrical system. The hydraulic system is more complicated. There is a source of pressure (the hydraulic pump), a system of valves to distribute the pressure, and as many as three actuators. As a common rule, most all hydraulic systems depend on the proper operation of a series of one-way valves or check valves in order to maintain the hydraulic force after the actuator has been stopped. And, of course, the hydraulic system requires a completely sealed system which prevents any loss of fluid or pressure.

Just in case you find part of your tilt and trim unit not working properly, it is wise to look for the part of tilt and trim unit that is defective rather than replacing the entire unit.
